hi. I have a Gainward Geforce 6800 GT and im running Forceware 71.84 and my temperatures just seem to be so much higher than before. Also does anyone know why when i overclock it, the 3d and 2d memory clock is always the same. When i put the memory up it automatically puts it up in 2d as well.
Thanks in advance

The memory thing is normal. I think they do it like that because there used to be crashes while transitioning from 2D to 3D or vice-versa.

On the temp problem, if you're running ExperTool, maybe your fan speed is set too low.

Read the release notes for the driver you just downloaded and installed. They have this listed under the "Open Issues" section,

also...is the temperature actually running 20 degrees more on average or is just reporting this even though the temperature is normal?

Yes, anything dated after the 10th March (IIRC) is free of it.

I think it has been proven it actually runs hotter.

If you overclock to 401 gpu for 2dmode and then back down to normal, the temperature will slowly return to normal within a minute. Have to do this every time you reboot.

Mmm... apparently the 71.89s are free of it, and are really just an improved version of the 71.84s. I'm not using them, because (as of yet) I've experienced no bugs whatsoever with the 71.84s. I'm assuming because my card is fanless, the temp just doesn't actually change.

the temp seems to be coming down much quicker after I exit a game.
